The Wizards were streaky to end the regular season, putting together a couple of four-plus-game winning streaks, but also losing five of their last eight games. Chemistry is always a question with this squad. John Wall and Bradley Beal — the team’s two best players and backcourt mates — don’t seem to like each other all that much.
Regardless, Washington has the explosive talent to cause trouble in the East this season. Shooters Otto Porter Jr. and Bojan Bogdanovic could be the Wizards’ difference makers in this series.
The Hawks won four out of their last five regular-season Cheap Dan Marino Jerseys games. They picked up two wins against the Cavs and one win against the Celtics during that stretch. Dennis Schroder will make or break this balanced team. He averaged 17.9 points, but also turned the ball over 3.3 times per game.

With the Rockets one win from clinching a second-round berth (Houston went on to win 105-99), Alexander went on the court to argue with referee Bill Kennedy during play at the end of the first quarter.
Alexander told the Houston Chronicle at halftime he was really upset Cheap Discount Jerseys when he confronted Kennedy. He declined to elaborate on what was said.
One thing we do know: Alexander is really passionate about his team.
